3rd March – another clearing in the forest!
Hambacher Forest cutting season takes place from 01. October to 28 February.
This time is maintained to take into account the nesting period. In spite of this, on the 1st of March new cutting has begun. This also included mulching and clearing of brush.
Today about 15 RWE contracted security from Mundt and Holzfäller were present guarding workers with chainsaws . When seen by activists they packed everything in and quickly withdrew behind their fence. This has been the first time that cutting has taken place this year without large police presence.
Neither RWE press office nor the Police made any statements about this action contradicting their own verbal promises to announce all actions ahead of time this year.
